Free Gif. Animator for mac?

I really need a free Gif animator for mac.

I have tried Gif Fun, but it makes the transparent part black, so no.

GifBuilder doesn't even load a new file, what the heck?

I don't know how to use Photoshop to make animations. If I press 'save for web devices', there's no save button. It's Adobe CS5 for mac, I don't know how to do it.

Also, no demos/trials either.

Anyone?

Making animated GIFs in Photoshop is easy.

Create a working PSD file. Have the 'Animation' palette open and set to Frame Animation if it's not already (there's a little button in the bottom right of the palette to toggle timeline/frame modes).

Create your animation by adding frames and showing/hiding layers for a given frame. You can also automatically tween between frames and do other automated tasks using the palette menus.

Save for web. Choose GIF and you're golden.

I have said, that in 'save for web and devices' there is no save button. I can't find it. Don't call me an idiot, because there isn't one.

No one calls you an idiot.

Does your SAVE TO WEB dialog not look like this?

Thumb resize.

Btw, GifBuilder, even though a bit older, worked quite okay for me, I could add and remove frames. That's how I built my current avatar.

What exact Mac OS X version do you use?

Well it looks like that, except the buttons below are cut off. When I enlarge the box, only the dark grey part (The one with the picture) Expands/shrinks, and therefore cannot gain access to those buttons.

What screen resolution do you have?

Can you make a screenshot of that dialog? And what version of PS do you have?

Taking screenshots in Mac OS X.

The resolution is the highest: 1280X800.

I am using Photoshop CS5 Extended (Legit copy)

Something very strange happening, it actually is now showing the save button. Hate when things go right when I have to prove it, it feels like I'm lying or something.

I'll post later when it becomes weird again.

EDIT: I found out why it was cut off. It was because my dock was too big. If I made my dock 'hiding', then it would show, but since I normally don't make it hide, it becomes cut off.

I'm wondering if this is a bug in Photoshop CS5.

See this earlier thread, where the poster had a similar problem with the HDR dialog scree - i.e. no "OK and "Back' button appearing.

EDIT: sorry, didn't see the last post until I'd posted this.
